The main way I read OCC is through the RSS feed, using Protopage. For some time now (week or two?) it's been reporting:


We could not connect to this URL (http://www.overclock...#38;type=rss2.0) to retrieve the news feed. Please check you have entered the address correctly. Alternatively, click the "Add Widgets" button at the top of the screen and try searching for a news widget to replace this one.


I can access the RSS link without problem in a browser, but apparently Protopage can't. Has there been a change in permissions or something?

I can't see any reason why they can't read the RSS feed, I tried to do a bunch of testing and we never see the request come through to the server or firewall. I've emailed their tech support to see if they can help out.

I tested the RSS feed in a few free RSS online readers and they all seem to grab the feeds without problems, so I think the feed still works for other RSS readers - hopefully Protopage can help us debug the problem.
